2A girls basketball: Tampa Prep stays close then stumbles in stretch

LAKELAND — Latora Lofgren scored 24, with 17 coming in the first half, but it wasn't enough as Tampa Prep fell 54-41 to Lakeland Christian in a Class 2A region quarterfinal Thursday night.

Tampa Prep took an early 6-0 lead, but Lakeland Christian fought back to tie it at 21 going into halftime.

Christin Strawbridge's 10 points in the third quarter matched Tampa Prep's team total as the Vikings outscored the Terrapins opponent 19-10 to take a 40-31 lead.

Strawbridge had a game-high 30 points as her team fed her the ball in the post all night.

After Lofgren hit one of her two free throws to start the fourth quarter, Strawbridge put the game away with seven straight points.

Strawbridge scored 19 of Lakeland Christian's 33 second-half points.

Lakeland Christian will host Indian Rocks Christian on Tuesday.

    MINNEAPOLIS — Before the Rays eventually won Sunday's 6½-hour, 15-inning marathon against the Twins 8-6, they did plenty to lose it. And we need to get that out of the way first.

    INDIANAPOLIS — Takuma Sato, a journeyman driver, became the first Japanese winner of the Indianapolis 500 on Sunday when he held off three-time champion Helio Castroneves in a 230-mph wheel-rubbing duel to the finish.

    Scott Dixon’s car goes over the top of Jay Howard, soaring so high that Helio Castroneves drove under it while it was airborne. Stunningly, there were no serious injuries.

    The Rays won because they got two innings of good relief from each of the two pitchers who contributed to them losing Saturday's game, Danny Farquhar (who again struck out Miguel Sano) and Tommy Hunter, who both posted zeroes.
